Help with Beaune restaurants

Bonjour Chowhounders. My husband and I will be in the area for 2 night only. The first night we will likely be tired from traveling, so I was thinking about eating at one of the restaurants at Hostellerie de Levernois as this is where we are staying. I have not found much on these restaurants and do not want to waste a meal if it is not good as we only have 2 nights.

The other night, I thought about booking either Ma Cuicine or P'tit Paradis. I am leaning toward P'tit Paradis as I love a modern twist, however, the owner of the wine shop I frequent suggested Ma Cuicine especially for the wine list. How to decide? Or, should I skip Hostellerie de Levernois and go to Ma Ciucine and P'tit Paradis?

  1. I've not personally eaten at either of your hotel's choices since I've just not had reason to pop over to the east side of Beaune...but from what I understand both the restaurant & bistro are good. I tend to be like you, not wanting to stray far from the room/bed on the first night.

    As for your choice on the 2nd night, you can't go wrong with either place! Enjoy!

    1. "Ma Ciucine and P'tit Paradis?"
      I llke both.
      I like the food of the latter better.
      Ma Cuisine has a wine list that makes one go "whoa !".
      Not that the wine list of Ptit Paradis is shabby, it is not.
      Another thing about Ptit Paradis: The clientele is mainly French, in fact all were French except us when we were there.
      At Ma Cuisine, the clientele is now mostly non-French.
      For some people this is a deal-breaker. It never bothers me.

        I agree. I don't mind having mainly tourists or all French as long as food & wine is good.

        I wish someone would response regarding their experience at Hostellerie de Levernois. I've looked at some positive reviews on other sites, but they are not Chowhound!

          Ms. L and I had a memorable, long, lazy lunch there one Sunday a couple of years back. Not inexpensive but we felt the service, ambience and cuisine commensurate with the cost. The setting is lovely, the cheese cart a model of Burgundian cheeses and the desserts photo-worthy.

            Hi Laidback,

            Did you have lunch in the restaurant or the bistro?
